I was sitting at the usual cafe for my benchwork break. With me were 2 non-muslim friends, J and S. We were talking craps when we unexpectedly came to a very interesting topic (for me).
J : Hey, Muhammad. If 2 girls like u; say, 1 is an open girl and another is a holy girl, which will u choose as ur wife?
I : Open? Holy? Wha?
S : What he means is 1 is free hair and sexy, and another is pious.
I : Oooh....
J : So, what's ur pick?
S : Surely u'll choose the pious one rite? *smiling sideways*
I : Hmm, there r 2 possibilities. 1, choose the pious one, 2, choose the open one.
S : Or maybe u'll choose both eh? Rakus la u... *lolx*
I : Haha. First choice surely the pious one,...
S : (cut in) Y is it u must wear those things covering ur body?
I : Oh, the hijab. Ok. Try looking at this angle. The girls put the hijab on bcoz the parts that they have to cover is meant for...
S : (cut in) The husbands. Oooh...
I : Yeah, ur right. And another thing is, when u put them on, it signifies that u have values, bcoz it is not to be seen by just anyone. So, if u have let others see these body parts, then u consider urself free aka valueless. Hence, if ur a husband, would u choose the ones with values or the ones without?
S : Yeeeaaaah.... Makes sense, dude.
I : But, if ur able to change people to realise their self-value, that is just super rite?
S : Yeah, sure is.
J : U r so easily influenced, S. lolx
Continue with hilarious conversation.
They were interested, and I kinda, like, help them see the beauty of Islamic practices. Not to say I'm excellent in that field, but I did my best. Any more concrete opinions, feel free to include here. Ur comments r free bcoz they're priceless, not valueless. haha
